Sale price$7,800.00

Illum Wikkelsø for CFC Silkeborg, pair of lounge chairs with ottoman and side table, leather, lacquered wood, metal, Denmark, 1970s

Exiting and rare to come by modular sitting set designed by Illum Wikkelsø in the 1970s. These modular designs are particularly quirky in their appearance and definitely add a delightful atmosphere in a space.

Illum Wikkelsø (1919-1999) is trained as a carpenter and later studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. He first worked for the Danish furniture maker Jacob Kjær and the architect Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard until 1954 when he opened his studio on the outskirts of Aarhus. Here he designed especially simple and elegant seating with great functionality, now considered classics of Danish furniture design. The style of his work varies from Kaare Klint's classicism to the soft organic craft by Arne Jacobsen.
